The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Rancho Mirage will be a sophisticated sanctuary and restorative oasis for hotel guests, resort residents and local visitors. The two-story facility will feature a fitness center with in/outdoor yoga and meditation spaces, a stylish salon, full men’s and women’s locker rooms, a retail boutique, 16 private treatment rooms and an outdoor relaxation lounge offering refreshing small pools.
Every aspect of the spa takes full advantage of the site’s natural splendor and breathtaking views of the surrounding desert and rugged mountain tops. The spa structure will be nestled into the hillside, tucked into the earth on multiple levels. The entrance will be artfully screened by a low wall and vine-covered trellises, which create a quiet, private entry courtyard, subtly allowing guests to de-compress as they enter the spa. Nearly two-thirds of the treatment rooms will have private terraces, with natural rock outcroppings and outdoor showers. An outdoor pre- and post- treatment relaxation area, with natural rock and a plunge pool, will be set into the hillside, emphasizing a direct connection with the landscape. The facility and surrounding area boasts several unique light, exterior and water elements that remain consistent with the area’s inherent beauty and relaxing atmosphere.
